Florida Bar: Casey Anthony attorney Jose Baez did not violate bar rules
Responding to a complaint about attorney Jose Baez and how he is getting paid, The Florida Bar said Baez broke no ethical rules.

The Florida Bar cleared Casey Anthony's lead defense attorney Jose Baez of an ethical complaint, accusing him getting paid in the case, according to documents obtained Tuesday by the Orlando Sentinel.

In a Sept. 9th letter from the Bar's grievance committee, the chairman David Golden said the committee "has determined that there is insufficient evidence to establish that Mr. Baez violated" Florida Bar rules and that the case is closed.

The committee began to look into the matter after a self-described freelance journalist and author Shannon Stoy filed a complaint in February. She is president of Blink Development Group, LLC, in Pennington, N.J.

Anthony remains in the Orange County Jail. She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie The toddler was reported missing in July 2008. Her remains were discovered five months later in a wooded area less than a mile from the east Orange County home Anthony shared with her parents.

In a six-page complaint, Stoy reported that she believed there was evidence "that could indicate possible violations" of Bar regulations by Baez.
Specifically, she charged that Baez may have entered into an agreement to reap money for representing Casey Anthony by publicizing the young Orlando woman's story.

Baez responded in writing to the grievance committee's questions, "in which he explained that his retaining agreement with Ms. Anthony does not contain any clauses that allow Mr. Baez financial gain based on selling the rights of Ms. Anthony's case," Golden wrote.
"Even though I knew these Bar complaints, including the two decided this week, were unfounded, it is always good to know that my peers at The Florida Bar agree," Baez said.

Baez told the Bar that he did not have to compensate Press Corps Media for media relations services because those services were "provided gratuitously," Golden wrote.This is the third complaint for which the Bar has found no violations.

Earlier this month, the Bar cleared Baez of ethics allegations made by private investigator Dominic Casey, who worked on the case.

The private investigator claimed he was never paid by Baez. He also reported a discussion he had with Baez about whether the investigator should do something other than call 911 if he found Caylee. Baez did not recall such a conversation and would never instruct Dominic Casey to do such a thing, the lawyer told the committee.

Both complaints were dismissed based on insufficient evidence, the Bar reported

Wasn't PRESS CORPS MEDIA associated with Todd Black? Just another criminal!

So, if BOZO can't write a book about KC, how else can he re-coup his money?

Lifetime Movies has already said they AREN'T PAYING for KC's story. The information has been released through the SUNSHINE LAWS. They are writing it themselves.

Could he really be paid that much for interviews? IMO, that wouldn't last long. There will be a TON of people, including the STATE PROS. that, after the verdict, can be interviewed.
